Matt Reeves, director of The Batman, unveiled the first look at the film. While only about 25% of the production is complete, there was still enough footage to give a basic idea of the plot.
Reeves also gave additional details about the story. The film will be set early in Batman’s crimefighting career with most of the villains still rising to power. When a series of murders are committed, Batman is able to deduce from the victims and situations regarding their deaths that they symbolize Gotham City’s history.
The Batman is currently scheduled for release on October 1, 2021, and will star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon.
